Firmware upgrade for external drive

Hi

I have an NEC-1300A external USB DVD-ROM drive and was wondering if anyone knows how I could flash a firmware upgrade without having to install it as an internal drive.

I have tried doing a standard flash for this device but it fails (without breaking the drive though, luckily). So I just wanted to check other avenues before pulling it apart (or buying a new one because its sooo darn old!)

Thanks!
